Yes, you will need an account with us before you can transfer your ISA across.

Our range of ISAs

Once you've applied and received your account number, please complete the four steps on our ISA Transfer Service page

If you have an Easy Access or Limited Access Cash ISA, you can deposit when you like. If your account is a Fixed Rate Cash ISA, you have 30 days from the day you open the account to both add money and send your ISA transfer form to us. Any deposits received after 30 days, may be returned to you.

Yes, you can hold ISAs with different providers. The important thing to remember is that you can only subscribe to one Cash ISA, one Stocks and Shares ISA, one Lifetime ISA and one Innovative Finance ISA per tax year, so if you’ve already made a deposit in the current tax year you'll need to transfer your existing ISA across to us before you can continue to deposit.

Absolutely, we accept both full and partial ISA transfers. Once you've opened your account with us, simply complete the four steps on our ISA Transfer Service page and pop how much you want to transfer over on the form. Some providers don’t allow partial transfers, therefore please check with your existing provider if this is something they can do.

The important point to remember is that you can’t partially transfer any money you have deposited in the current tax year – you need to move your full subscription over in the transfer.

Yes, you can transfer as many ISAs as you like in to one ISA with us. Simply open an account with us, and once you’ve received your account number complete the four steps on our ISA Transfer Service page

You will need to make sure your ISA is still eligible for additional deposits by checking your Terms and Conditions and Key Product Information.

Remember

Each tax year, everyone aged 16 and over in the UK gets an annual tax-free ISA allowance, which is £20,000 in the current tax year. The tax year runs from 6 April to 5 April the following year.

With an ISA you can save money as cash (in a Cash ISA), invest in the stock market (in a Stocks & Shares ISA), lend your money to other individuals or companies as a loan (in an Innovative Finance ISA), save towards your first home and/or retirement (in a Lifetime ISA) or a combination of all four. This is based on HM Revenue and Customs UK taxation law and practice which may change.

An ISA, or Individual Savings Account, allows you to invest up to the maximum ISA allowance each tax year without you having to pay a penny of tax on any interest or gains you make. You can transfer your money between the different types of ISAs, however please remember you can only subscribe to one of each type of ISA, Cash ISA, Stocks and Shares ISA, Innovative Finance ISA and Lifetime ISA (maximum £4,000) in each tax year, up to the combined annual subscription limit.

Here at Virgin Money, we have a range of Cash ISAs and Stocks and Shares ISAs for you to choose from. However we don’t currently offer an Innovative Finance ISA or Lifetime ISA.

If you have any questions about your Cash ISA, please use our ask a question facility or contact us on 0345 600 7301.
